Freightliner’s first EBA a step closer
Negotiations have continued with Freightliner Coal, for their first EA, with another day of negotiations occurring yesterday.
Further progress was made with significant changes being agreed and the parties have now allocated Friday 25 March to hopefully finalise the Agreement.
The Company arranged to have the majority of Train Crew employees at the meeting location for the Division to meet with them and discuss the current status of negotiations for two hours prior to negotiations commencing.
All those members present were happy with the progress of the negotiations and made further suggestions on changes which the Division negotiators raised with the Company.
The members elected their first Divisional Depot Organiser and a further two members indicated their willingness to assist, which was a great outcome for the Division and a positive sign that members what to be involved in their Union.
Both the Company and the Division have developed a healthy professional relationship and we certainly look forward to working with the Company into the future.
